Article 513

Aircraft Hangars

513.12 GFCI Protected Receptacles

New section requires GFCI protection for 15 and 20A, 125V receptacles where aircraft might undergo service, repairs, or alterations.

GFCI protection for personnel is required for all 15 and 20A, 125V receptacles used for service and repair operations, such as electrical diagnostic equipment, electrical hand-tools, portable lighting devices, etc. Figure 513-1

Author's Comment: Personnel servicing and maintaining aircraft use the same hand tools and equipment that are used in commercial garages, which requires GFCI protection.
